Intendu, a Herzliya, Israel-based startup developing technology to improve cognitive rehabilitation of people with brain dysfunction, received an equity investment from Impact First Investments (IFI).
The amount of the funding was not disclosed.
The company will use the funds to continue conducting clinical trials to measure the effect of training with its software.
Led by Dr. Son Preminger, Founder and CEO, Intendu provides brain training through adaptive video games that involve physical activity, including games that target training of cognitive functions such as multi-tasking, memory, inhibition, self-initiation, etc.
Its neuro-cognitive engine constantly monitors a player’s activity and performance as they engage and interact in video games through natural body gestures. Based on a player’s performance and bio-feedback, the games’ challenges dynamically adapt to optimize stimulation of a patient’s brain and help them achieve rehabilitation goals.
The platform can be used for ongoing training of people with brain disorders at both a clinic and at home.
